am i blue? are you blue? what is blue? blue hoo. this book is about the color blue and the poet's extremeness about said color. (well, the book is billed as poetry but it is all in prose, though they'd not really prosepoems, more like single paragraphs with a lot of quotations; very anne carsony.) it is precious, sometimes in a good way, sometimes in an 'oh shut up' way. the sex parts are steamy but kind of gruesome. if you read this you will find out many fun fax about blue, like: the buddha statues blown up by the taliban marked the mineshaft to the world's oldest and most famous deposit of lapis lazuli. who knew? maggie nelson, that's who.
